    Hey everyone,

    The new recruits are coming thick and fast at the moment. We have an new Senior Programmer in the form of Simon Hobbs @SCH. Let's show him a warm TerraTech welcome!

    Si joins us with a bat-load of experience working on the Arkham Series including the actual Batmobile in the games. So he knows a thing or two about awesome looking stealthy techs.

    His first game was published in '88 on the ZX Spectrum. You get points for even being born then!

    Hello there @SCH! I'm afraid I don't have any obscure references or allusions to your past job, but I still extend my welcome :p

    hi simon,

    , I also should get points as not only was I born at that time, BUT I was also gaming, writing programs (had written several games (but none published) and many utility programs (and in that era was all for the TRS-80 model 1 3 & 4) (and was also selling the trs series computers) in a tandy store)

    I knew she looked familiar! Yes, I did, but Rocksteady was pretty big by that point so I didn't know everyone personally.
